Michael Harvey - Apprentice General Engineer

After leaving Central Southland College Michael was given the opportunity to become a Modern Apprentice, employed by Winton Engineering Ltd. Michael has his own Modern Apprenticeship Coordinator who develops an individual Training Plan for him. Southern Group Training is the Modern Apprenticeship Coordinator for a range of trades, including engineering, in Southland.


Michael’s Coordinator who is industry qualified and a registered workplace assessor, works with Michael as his own personal mentor/coach, to assist him in achieving the requirements for his apprenticeship qualification.


Michael’s Training Plan outlines what unit standards are required to complete his chosen qualification then identifies, based on what work he is doing in the workplace, which unit standards Michael should be doing at any given time. He is encouraged to complete regular workplace assessments.


The Modern Apprenticeship service comes at no cost to either the employer or apprentice.
